The Eastern Regional Organizer aspirant of the ruling New Patriotic Party Jerry Osei-Opoku says the regional executives election must liberate the party from the shackles of “cabal that sidelined some of the executives” from decision making in Eastern region.
According to him, the region has suffered in the last few years due to the activities of this cabal within the Regional executive level which created disunity.
“This election must be about individual competence and track record. How the candidate has served the people with respect, humility and truth. So coming Saturday’s election must be one that will liberate the party from the shackles of leadership that segregates executives, leadership that doesn’t bring unity, leadership that sideline some executives to form a cabal that determines what happens in the party.A cabal that believes they are the only wise people”.
He said the cabal that was formed at the regional level sidelined some of the executives and took decisions including determination of how campaign resources were distributed in presidential and parliamentary election in the Eastern region.
“Even though the people voted for these executives, when Chairman and his cabal meet, youth organizer, organizer , secretary are sidelined .people must be responsible .we must judge people by their strength and what they have done and not lumping people together and judging them” Jerry Osei Opoku said this in an interview on Koforidua based Bryt FM Thursday Evening.
